Overview / Story

In Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros 3 Bowser and his troublemaking kids have plunged the land into chaos by transforming all the local kings into animals; and it's up to Mario and Luigi to stop them. In what many consider to be the best Mario game ever, you'll have to run, jump, and stomp on enemies through eight enormous worlds as you use awesome new power-ups such as the Warp Whistle and the Frog and Tanooki Suits. This epic platformer spans the land, sea, and sky, and it's only the beginning of the fun to be found on this Game Pak. Players can add cool new features with the Card e-Reader or link up with friends for multi-player mayhem with the original Mario Bros. game. Any way you play, it's one of Mario's greatest adventures--and it's all in the palm of your hand.

The Story

The Mushroom Kingdom has been a peaceful place thanks to the brave deeds of Mario and Luigi. The Mushroom Kingdom forms an entrance to the Mushroom World where all is not well. Bowser has sent his 7 children to make mischief as they please in the normally peaceful Mushroom World.

They stole the royal magic wands from each country in the Mushroom World and used them to turn their kings into animals. Mario and Luigi must recover the royal magic wands from Bowser's 7 kids and return the kings to their true forms. "Goodbye and good luck!," said the Princess and Toad as Mario and Luigi set off on their journey deep into the Mushroom World.


Interesting Facts

  • Within levels 1-2 and 3-4 when you have a P-Wing you can dive beneath the floor and fly under it for the rest of the levels.

  • If a block contains an item, it will not turn into a coin when a P-Switch is used.

  • Similar save-game system to that of SMB3 on the Super Mario AllStars compilation.

  • There was an e-Card which allowed use of a powerup called Boomerang, this has not ever been featured in any other Mario games.
